Remarks

The Xamarin API supports two styles of event notification: the Objective-C style that uses a delegate class or the C# style using event notifications.

The C# style allows the user to add or remove event handlers at runtime by assigning to the events of properties of this class. Event handlers can be anyone of a method, an anonymous methods or a lambda expression. Using the C# style events or properties will override any manual settings to the Objective-C Delegate or WeakDelegate settings.

The Objective-C style requires the user to create a new class derived from UITextFieldDelegate class and assign it to the P:UIKit.Delegate property. Alternatively, for low-level control, by creating a class derived from NSObject which has every entry point properly decorated with an [Export] attribute. The instance of this object can then be assigned to the WeakDelegate property.

Constructors

UITextField() UITextField()

Default constructor that initializes a new instance of this class with no parameters.

UITextField(CGRect) UITextField(CGRect)

Initializes the UITextField with the specified frame.

UITextField(IntPtr) UITextField(IntPtr)

A constructor used when creating managed representations of unmanaged objects; Called by the runtime.

UITextField(NSCoder) UITextField(NSCoder)

A constructor that initializes the object from the data stored in the unarchiver object.

UITextField(NSObjectFlag) UITextField(NSObjectFlag)

Constructor to call on derived classes to skip initialization and merely allocate the object.
